Wide receivers

Postby PonyPride » Sun May 21, 2023 11:11 am

With the news that WR Jordan Hudson has committed to transfer to SMU, it seems worthwhile to take a new look at the SMU offense for the 2023 season.

Replacing a talent worthy of an NFL draft pick always can be daunting, and Mustang-turned-Kansas-City-Chief Rashee Rice leaves a massive void. But consider the group of targets for the 2023 passing game:
Jake Bailey
Romello Brinson
Joey Bruszer
Carter Campbell
Jamarrion Carroll
Keaton Cheves
Roderick Daniels
Daylon Dickerson
Moochie Dixon
Nic Heck
Hudson
Lonnie Johnson
Jordan Kerley
Teddy Knox
Jaxson Lavender
Conner Moore
Randy Reece
Key'Shawn Smith
Henry Stickler

Many look at this group and argue that there's no clear-cut No. 1 receiver. Maybe that's true, although based on chatter at spring workouts, there certainly are those who think Kerley, Smith, Brinson already can make that claim.

But remember the days when coaches would sing the praises of their starters, followed by some statement about "fingers crossed that nobody gets hurt"? Of the players listed above seven — Kerley, Brinson, Dixon, Smith, Hudson, Bailey and Daniels — already have started college games, and an argument can be made that several more are worthy of starting roles ... and that doesn't even include the incoming freshmen.

Receivers coach Rob Likens, offensive coordinator Casey Woods and head coach Rhett Lashlee have some difficult choices to make — the kind of choices every coach would love to have.

Plenty of targets for our young and relatively inexperienced QBs. Hope we have an OL that can give them time to find these guys. Together with the increased depth in the RB room, this year's SMU offense could really be explosive

If you're an opposing defensive coordinator, your plan has to be (even more than usual) about busting up the offensive line. These guys aren't Eric Dickerson and Courtland Sutton, but the depth of guys who could be quality weapons is ridiculous. Let's just hope most of them pan out.

So who do you think will comprise the 2 deep at receiver?
Kerley - Hudson - Bailey ???
Brinson - Smith - Daniels ???

It appears Glenn Younkin may re-consider and run for President. Should he win the Republican nomination and ultimately the office of President, we should consider not "Wide Receiver U" but "First Lady U." :)

While I rarely reply to anything remotely suggesting a political take, I will simply state:

Why not both?

I assume preseason camp will be a lot of Lashlee quotes about how "we don't have starting receivers because a lot deserve it." But someone has to start, so I'll say:

Kerley Daniels Smith
Brinson Bailey Hudson
Everybody else

If they keep collecting players like that, that's the kind of arsenal that will make more quarterbacks look at SMU in the years ahead.
